EP26: User Evaluation of Between-Reagent Lot Variation, 2nd Edition

CLSI requests nominations for volunteers to serve as members and contributors on a document development committee for a document revision.


CLSI document EP26 will provide medical laboratories with information on a simple, practical, and statistically sound protocol for quantitative measurement procedures to evaluate the consistency of patient sample results when a new analytical reagent lot replaces a reagent lot currently in use.

NOTE: This project will be developed through a pilot program for standards development. Click here to learn more.

This group is looking for volunteers with:

  • Expertise in statistical protocol and measurement procedure evaluation development
  • Experience in medical laboratory practice (eg, laboratorians, laboratory managers, and laboratory directors)
  • Experience in laboratory accreditation processes
  • Experience in in vitro diagnostic manufacturing

Additional information on essential job duties and skills and abilities for CLSI committee participants can be viewed here.
